Ubisoft had two major new game announcements at E3 2019. One of them was an expected sequel to Watch Dogs (which looks great). The other is Gods & Monsters, a completely new action-RPG from the developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It looks like an Ancient Greece version of Breath of the Wild, and we’re totally on board. Surprisingly we already got a release date: February 25, 2020.

“Over the last 10 years, I have had the chance to be part of an incredible team that has pushed the limits of Assassin’s Creed to explore historical periods from a unique angle,” says Marc-Alexis Côté, senior producer, Ubisoft Quebec. “But our imagination has always been bound to the reality of the history books. Through our work on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey these past four years, our minds have lingered on another aspect of our history – mythology. Today, with Gods & Monsters, the tales we all love and know so well become a reality to be explored like never before.”

Gods & Monsters will feature a colorful fantasy world filled with dungeons, puzzles, trials, and mythological monsters. The hero will be able to wield the power of the gods while they overcome challenges to save them on the Isle of the Blessed.

Gods & Monsters is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One on February 25, 2020.
